Pulse is showing as part of the Screenability Program at the Sydney Film Festival and takes us on a journey of Olly. A young disabled boy who transitions into a female without disabilities after a somewhat sci-fi inspired surgery.
The intersection of disability and sexuality is a torrid relationship at the best of times and writer Daniel Monks, who also stars in the film, takes you down the rabbit hole to explore the discrimination he lives with every day.
Along the way we investigate unrequited love, searching for acceptance in a place fueled by self loathing and the social model of disability.
Producer Stevie Cruz-Martin and Daniel, joined us in the 2ser studios just before the first screening of the film on Wednesday night to discuss PULSE. Here we launch into a discuss about the core themes of this Australian feature
